The 2018 Rosé is made with Pinot Noir grown in Lake Country and West Kelowna and blended with Merlot and Zweigelt from Lake Country. We harvest the grapes specifically for Rosé, meaning that we pick them earlier than we would if we were making red wine. This results in a lighter wine with more freshness. At the winery the grapes are crushed and held in the press for up to 3 hours to extract a small amount of colour. As soon as the juice takes on a light pink hue, we press it and ferment it cool to preserve the lovely berry and floral aromas. The wine is aged on the lees for three months in both stainless steel tanks and neutral oak barrels before filtration and bottling.
The bouquet has aromas of strawberry, cranberry, grapefruit and rose petals. The palate is rich and full, presenting abundant fruit flavor and a touch of minerality on the finish.
